Actress Shikha Talsania, who has received rave reviews for her performance in the film “Veere Di Wedding”, says she cannot do one-dimensional characters and prefers to have layers in her roles.

Shikha, along with celebrities like Pulkit Samrat and Angira Dhar, opened up in “Open House with Renil” on zoOm.

“I cannot do one-dimensional characters. I cannot play a fat girl who is either just hungry or horny and I want layers to my characters. Give me such a character and I’ll give you a performance. You want me to play a man? Done! I’ll do it,” Shikha said.

Pulkit said he is no exception to struggle.

“I wanted to act since childhood and one day I told my parents that I intended to go to Bombay (Mumbai) to become an actor. After this, my father stopped talking to me for days. I was taken aback as my father was very keen to see me as a Bollywood actor when my mother was expecting me.

“So, when I reminded him of his golden words, he told me he made a mistake. But all’s well that ends well. Now my father is super proud of me and happy with my decision.”

“When I informed my then boyfriend about this, he reacted very strangely and dissuaded me from joining the film industry due to his apprehensions. But I followed my dream and here I am today, very proud of my decision,” Angira said. (IANS)

Comedy is quite difficult to do: Nushrat.

Actress Nushrat Bharucha of “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” fame has some more comedy films coming up but says they’re not easy to do.

“Comedy actually is quite difficult to do. The timing, the tone, the delivery and the precise expressions are all very crucial, especially for actresses because we are not given the author-backed punches,” Nushrat  Bharucha told IANS.

“But I’m very comfortable with the comedy films that I have done because they have a certain premise and subtext. I have been playing catalyst sort of roles in the comedy films that I’ve been doing. I love what I do, I love what is being given to me, I am comfortable with it and I love the way it has been received,” added the “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” actress.

Looking back at her Bollywood career, which started over a decade ago, she said: “If you come to think of it, it’s been a comical journey for me.”

“But both ‘Turram Khan’ and ‘Dream Girl’ are very different from the rom-com (romantic-comedy) films I’ve done in the past. Their treatments are different and even within the comedy genre, these films explore different sub-generes. ‘Turram Khan’ is a social comedy and ‘Dream Girl’ is a unique yet a hardcore commercial entertainer.”

“I feel it’ll take time for everything to fall into place – whether it’s scripts, roles, characters or writing. So, I guess with time, I will do other genres,” she said. (IANS)
